Sleeping in a sling - Older babies

I'm mostly a lurker here (for about 4 years!), but I'd like to start posting more. So I am starting with a question. My baby was born in January, and until mid-July she slept in the sling pretty much all the time, except at night when she sleeps with us.
Then I had surgery, so I wasn't using the sling while I was healing and have been just nursing her to sleep in the bed. That is no problem. I am just wondering if it is possible for larger babies to sleep in a pouch sling (a Hotsling), because she is really too big for the cradle carry now. Now that I am starting to use it again, I really only do the hip carry but I can't imagine her falling asleep that way. Maybe I just need to get more comfortable with it.
So, anyone have experience with a bigger baby sleeping in a pouch sling? It doesn't really matter if she sleeps in it or not, because she sleeps well in the stroller if I'm out, but it would be handy if she did.
